Jane has been completely redone & I had to check it out. I found these eyeshadows at my local ULTA store (you can see them online here) but you can also see them on the Jane website. I used Jane all through middle school so I was really excited about the revamp. The prices are much higher than they used to be but the quality has also changed! Keep reading to see my thoughts on the Jane Eyeshadows in River Rock & Juniper & how I used them!
Lets start with packaging! These eyeshadows do come sealed (yay!) & have basic black packaging with peek windows on top along with the Jane name. On the back we have the shade name, barcode, & product basics. You receive 2.5 grams per container. These are also labeled on back as Shimmer or Matte or whathaveyou so if you have a hard time telling in the store or online it is an easy indicator.The shades themselves have a beautiful floral imprint, nice touch.
On the left is Juniper which is a smokey slightly blackened shimmering blue/green. Very much a peacock or sultry mermaid shade. River Rock was an easy shade choice because it is a shimmering silver based taupe. Taupe people, I’m all about the taupe.
These swatched effortlessly & without fallout. They are both quite buttery without being too soft. Both are swatched without primer. The first photo is regular swatches & the second is with flash so you can see the blue/green shimmer really pop as it does when the light hits it.
For the eye look I did use primer (I just usually do) & did something basic. If you’re wondering about what’s on my lips, brows, face, or eyeliner I’ll be posting about them later on today! I used River Rock as a singular eyelid shade & then blended with a neutral shade as a matte highlight at the browbone. I lined my eyes with a black eyeliner then topped it off with Juniper for a smokey pop of color.
I’m really happy with this look & it was super easy to create! I think it is simple but very pretty & flattering for day or night. I think adding Juniper this way to a day look really takes it to night with ease as well.
They have lots of colors in this line ranging from mattes to shimmers to metallics. Lots of color options! I opted for two shimmers because I just loved the colors & I’ll probably be picking up some more. I have been using matte shades out of palettes so that’s why I went with some new shimmers. The pricing is quite steep for a drugstore sided eyeshadow at $8 each. I only picked them up because they were on sale 2 for $10 at ULTA & you can also use the ULTA coupons on them.
What do you think of the look I created? Are these eyeshadows you’d be drawn to? Have you tried anything from Jane that I need to seek out next time?
